As a woman gets older, the onset of the Menopause means that the amount of oestrogen in her system begins to decrease. This can mean that the delicate tissues of the vagina are not so naturally well lubricated, leading to irritation and dryness.
However, there is no need to suffer in silence. Use all the aids at your disposal and there are a huge range of personal lubrications. However, for some women, lubricants have a certain connotation that associates them with somehow being dirty and they feel that it is not seemly to utilise them. But normal women do enjoy sex and making love effectively should not be considered a bad thing. Nor should there be any shame associated with seeking specialist help in the form of one of the many lubricants available on the chemist or supermarket shelves.
Unfortunately, for the Menopausal woman, even these traditional brands may not be quite enough to enable a pleasurable experience, especially as much of the gel can be lost at the initial entry. Some women need help after that first penetration.
Astroglide’s Silken Secret is a big dollop of regular Astroglide’s long-lasting, super slippery formula in a specially-designed pre-filled applicator that propels the requisite amount of aid right to the heart of the problem.
The package comprises six individually-wrapped applicators, each containing 5ml of Astroglide. Unlike traditional sachet samples, which are always so difficult to open, you just whip off the end with a twist, insert and squirt for instant vaginal dryness help. It feels cool, smooth and soothing and lasts for ages but, once it is no longer required, it doesn’t become gritty or sticky inside you because, being water-based, any excess is absorbed.
Because Silken Secret contains no hormone-related ingredients or other possibly problematic chemicals, there are no worries about contra-indications with other prescribed treatments or hormonal implications.
Another huge tick in its favour is that it will not interfere with either the natural PH balance within this delicate ecosystem which is poised so critically on the edge when a woman is going through her ‘Change’, or any contraceptives – which are still vital at this unpredictable time.
For those women for whom even the water-based Silken Secret is insufficient, there is a new alternative.. A silicon-based premium personal lubricant, Astroglide X is super slippery and very soothing to irritated tissues.
On opening the sachet, what I noticed immediately was how very runny it was, spilling off my fingers and onto the bedsheets. I am a big fan of the other Astroglide varieties but none of them is quite as thinly liquid as X. It was like a sort of smooth water, totally clear and did not leave any residue or discolouration on the white sheet once it had dried. Like her sisters, it is fragrance-free, non-irritating and latex-safe.
But it’s more than all that because this lubricant works for both partners, heightening sensuality and mutual stimulation levels, as well as prolonging performance.
At a time when I didn’t think I was going to enjoy making love, it enhanced the experience and made it pleasurable again.
I really liked this.
